O take me in your arms, love
For keen doth the wind blow
O take me in your arms, love
For bitter is my deep woe

He hears me not, he heeds me not
Nor does he listen to me
While here I lie alone now
To die beneath the willow tree

My love hath wealth and beauty
Rich suitors attend his door
My love hath wealth and beauty
He slights me because I am poor

The ribbon fair that binds my hair
Is all that is left to me
While here I lie alone now
To die beneath the willow tree

I once had gold and silver
I bought them without end
I once had gold and silver
I thought I had a true friend

My wealth is lost, my friend is false
My love hath he stolen from me
While here I lie alone now
To die beneath the willow tree
